    I started out with Ford, I bought my first new truck when I was 20 years old, a 1987 full size Bronco, then a 1988 cab and half work truck, then a 1991 Explorer for my wife. The explorer was a huge lemon, was in the shop more than in my garage. We put up with it for 11,000 miles and I wanted to trade it for a Winstar. The Ford dealer said and I quote I will buy back my problems. He gave me a price for trade and I thought it seemed high. I went 7 mile down the road to a Dodge dealer and told him all the problems I was having with the explorer, I kept no secrets with him. The dodge dealer gave me a trade-in price on a new Caravan at the time there was approximately $5000 difference on the trade in price comparing sticker price numbers compared to the Ford dealer. I went back to my Ford dealer and asked him if he possibly made an error on figuring out the price of the trade. His reply was, it looks like you’ll be buying a Dodge now doesn’t it. I have bought 19 new vehicles since then and my kids are now buying new Dodges. I am extremely bitter towards Fords and my brother in law always reminds me that I don’t dislike Fords, I dislike the Ford dealer. He is actually right but I still will never have a Ford in my yard.

    I never realize the 1340 was also a shovel head. I thought it was just the evo. Learn something everyday

    Interesting photos I have run across.

    I wish my dad was around to verify but I believe FWD/ Segrave in Clintonville WI built those.

    Horn wire placement

    When I built my semi I had too thick a coat of paint on the steering wheel and button. The horn once pushed would hang up and stay on.

    All post count means to me is the higher the number the more time you have on your hands.

    I agree Merle. But we still go out in the—————-.cold and do our job. And most of us just do our job without whining about the weather. Just keep in mind by Sunday the weather will be 60 degrees warmer than yesterday. Man I love Wisconsin!!! Just a side note about 10 years ago it was 60 degrees out on January 12 so we decided to go for a motorcycle ride. Everything was fine until we stayed in the bar until way after dark and the roads froze over. I ended up getting a very expensive ride in a helicopter with a broken neck. And yes Merle I know you teach bike class and I am sure that you would not have advised my decision. And yes I learned my lesson.

    You would think the amount of work it took to move that cab they could’ve just made the frame 6 feet longer.
  10. It’s in amazing shape. It’s hard to believe no one is jumping on this. Around here we deal with salt and you never see a truck body in that good of shape.

    I am thinking the cold weather is getting to you, you have been kinda crabby lately. I have been working all week in and outside all day long. It’s Wisconsin!! It’s ok. Don’t start wearing a hat and gloves in October, you get soft and depend on them. You won’t see gloves or a hat on me until it hits zero or if I riding in a Ford so no body recognizes me.

    Simple solution! Ratrod!!!! 🤪
  14. When I first got DC Pete (1949 B1B) resorered in 1980 my drunken buddy backed into my drivers door. I ran to the local junkyard and got a new door and the body shop installed and painted it. It wasn’t until years later I realized I had a different door than the passenger side. It was off of a 51-53. So when I built my 53 Semi I robbed the drivers door and put on the semi. A few years ago when my son started getting DC Pete painted (again) I gave him a 50 1.5 Ton door to use I robbed off a parts truck. The body shop could not get the hinges to work so some very nice gentleman on the forum sent me a set of hinges from a 49 and it fit perfectly, I apologize for not remembering who sent me the hinges but he refused to let me pay for them. I believe the hinges may have varied within the three years.

    I heard on talk radio a while back a phobia called FOMO. which stands for Fear Of Missing Out. Maybe that’s why you can’t sleep.
